The conoscope is a necessary tool for use with a polariscope. Our conoscope is a strain free glass ball held within a black plastic protective case with convenient handle. The conoscope is used for magnifying the view of the axis through a polariscope. The conoscope allows you to see 2-d representation of the 3-d interference of the axis within the gem. The axis and its visual image is also called the interference figure. Conoscopes are also called interference spheres or interference balls.

I have been so happy with the Gem tools, like this conoscope, that I have received from this site! I have officially bookmarked this and it is my go to whenever I need a new tool. The quality is amazing and the prices are very affordable. This is a really useful tool, and it is a convenient size. Free shipping is always nice, especially when it is fast! I couldn't be happier with this.
